Popped my building cherry.
Just thought I'd share this with Talk bass as it seems a relevant subject for fellow bass enthusiasts like myself . I recently decided to take the first steps to building my own Precision bass... I bought all the parts over the space of four months and over the last weekend I started putting it all together. There were a lot of cock ups, mistakes to learn from and hurdles to pass.. but I managed to finish it with my head held high. It took me a hell of a lot of hours over the space of a three days but it was worth it.
Here are the specs:
~ Fender MIM tobacco sunburst body.
~ Mighty Mite Fender-licensed Precision 70s neck
~ Schaller Tuners.
~ Allparts tortoise shell pick guard.
~ Hipshot A style Brass Bridge.
~ Fender neck plate.
~ Fender strap buttons.
~ a '58 split coil Precision pickup handwound by The Creamery.
~ 1meg volume pot.
~ Tonestyler tone pot.
Playability wise it's great, it is nice and heavy, just the way I like basses to be , sound wise it is a lot brighter /punchier than I expected, even when using D'Addario Chromes, But it still has that meaty low end presence. The pickups by The Creamery will be testament to that. .
I've put a picture of the new arrival in her trolley as you may be able to see... She can certainly rumble lol
Congratulations, looks great!
Nice bolt up sir...
